Draw and Learn with Jesse


Learn the secrets of turning colored pencil into a Fine Art medium…. creating works as rich and nuanced as any oil painting.

All skill levels welcome! 


Jesse guides you step by step, sharing his signature style... including special tips for creating nuanced skin tones.

Learn the basics of Jesse's technique to start the portrait and get a detailed, step-by-step workbook to complete the drawing  on your own.


Classes are thorough as Jesse breaks down complex rendering into simple steps.  Everyone works on the same portrait as Jesse gives detailed demos and also works with students one-on-one.

The workshop includes:


  • Demos: A video camera on Jesse’s drawing board is projected to a screen so students can follow along as they draw.


  • One-on-One Instruction: Jesse visits each participant, offering encouragement, answering questions, explaining technique and giving tips individual to each student.


  • Jesse provides high-quality instructional materials, including a reference photo, a glossy tutorial booklet, and the image already outlined on drawing paper.  Workbooks also have a complete list of colors for each section.

  • Students are required to bring their own drawing supplies. A materials list is distributed well in advance of the workshop.



Take your art to the next level... 

as everyone shares their love of colored pencil in a friendly, relaxed atmosphere.
